Howard Porter had a great deal to do with the popularity J'Onn J'Onzz has enjoyed since 1996. Porter was often criticized for going well off model from the good looks of DC's style guides when it came to more iconic heroes. Martian Manhunter was both a relief and an opportunity to the artist, since Porter could do whatever he liked within reason, and become identified with the character. I'm not a big fan of DC's recycling of across chest straps on so many of their heroes, but Porter uses them well here as a standout symbol amidst an Alien Atlas largely in silhouette. J'Onzz is unusually graceful, but still "off" enough to maintain his extraterrestrial air. I like the Kirby bigness of everything, completely unrealistic but amusingly bombastic. The Adam Hughes puffy boots are a nice touch.
